Fiat – 1100 Derby Bertone

.


Vehicle Overview

FIAT’s original ‘1100’ family, which had commenced back in 1937 with the 508C Balilla, eventually came to an end in 1953 with arrival of the all-new unitary construction 1100-103. Built in 1954, this 1100-103 convertible carries stylish coachwork by Carrozzeria Bertone of Turin. Company founder Giovanni Bertone had retired in 1945, but before then had recruited Count Mario Revelli de Beaumont as a styling consultant. Revelli’s first job had been with Stabilimenti Farina, from where he moved on to work for FIAT and also the recently founded Pinin Farina. He was an exceptionally influential designer, working later for General Motors and Simca, and is credited with introducing American styling ideas, as is evident from the ‘transatlantic’ lines and accents of this FIAT convertible.
